This scent has an obvious difference to the Janan Gold, but both of them get reactions of, OMG this reminds me of Creed Aventus from our customers.
Janan Gold is more citrus in the opening but I do get what they mean. I think this is to do with the fact that the original creed can vary in scent too from batch to batch and actually no two batches of creed have been known to smell exactly the same either.
I wouldn’t classify this as a dupe for Creed Aventus per se, (Janan Gold is more commonly purchased for that!) but it does make you think of it.
